Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
718 PM MST Tue Nov 21 2017

A back door cold front moving south over the eastern plains and west
towards central New Mexico, produced breezy to gusty winds over the
eastern plains today. Breezy east winds are expected this evening
through mountain passes and west facing canyons of the Sandia, Manzano
and south central mountains, as the front moves into the Rio Grande
river valley. Skies this afternoon were mostly sunny to partly cloudy
with afternoon high temperatures generally ranging from the 40s to
upper 50s over higher terrain and over lower terrain over the upper
Rio Grande river valley and over the northeast plains to the upper
50s to lower 70s over lower terrain elsewhere.

For tonight, skies will be mostly clear to partly cloudy. Overnight
low temperatures will generally range from the mid teens to 20s in
the north and over lower terrain in the west and over the Estancia
valley to the 30s to lower 40s over higher terrain in the west and
over lower terrain along the middle to lower Rio Grande and San
Fransisco river valleys and over the east to southeast plains. High
pressure aloft building into the desert southwest, will keep northern
and central New Mexico dry through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend
with above normal temperatures expected. A few near record to record
high temperatures will be possible, especially Thanksgiving Day and
on Friday.
